Flashcards in P2 Physics - Forces and distance/time graphs Deck (14)
what are speed and velocity both measured in?
how fast your going
how fast you are going but with the distance specified: eg 30mph north
what does the gradient of a D/T graph tell you
how fast your object is travelling
flat sections =
striaght uphill or downhill =
travelling at steady speed
acceleration or deceleration
a steepening curve =
leveling off curve =
what is resultant force?
object has different forces acting upon it
they can be added up to make the resultant force
what happens to an object that has resultant force acting upon it
it will change its velocity
if the resultant force of an object is zero, what will happen?
the object will remain stationary
